Agricultural Internet of Things and Decision Support for Smart Farming, (PDF) shows how a set of key enabling technologies (KET) related to agronomic management, data mining, remote and proximal sensing, decision-making and automation can be efficiently combined in one system. Chapters include how KETs enable real-time monitoring of soil conditions, site-specific requirements of crop systems, determine real-time, help develop a decision support system (DSS) aimed at optimizing the efficient use of resources, and offer planning for agronomic inputs differentiated in time and space. This ebook is ideal for academics, researchers, post-graduate students and practitioners who want to embrace new agricultural technologies.
